Margo: A U.S. border shutdown would be "crippling" to El Paso

EL PASO, Texas - Shutting down the southern U.S. border would be "crippling" to not just El Paso, but also to Texas and the U.S., the city's mayor told ABC-7 on Wednesday. He made the assessment in the days after President Donald Trump threatened to close down the border in the wake of the massive uptick of migrants -- a majority of them from Central America, according to reports -- flocking to the U.S.-Mexico border in order to seek asylum.
